Meet Frenchie and Cubby!

Frenchie is our 8 pound, black and red phantom mini poodle. She’s my sidekick and the family pet.
Cubby is my husbands 12 pound, wheaten parti,  toy schnauzer.

He has gotten quite a bit heavier than we anticipated, coming from 5 and 9 pound parents. I imagine because he is big boned. After a few different attempts to breed Frenchie to a toy poodle with no success, we began to think she was sterile. COVID  hit and we figured as soon as it was safe, we would get her spayed. Cubby was to be neutered as well. Crazy Frenchie went into a silent heat but, “you know who” noticed! That’s right, Mr. Cubs! About four weeks later, we had forgotten about the mating and basically assumed she was still incapable of having babies. Then, Frenchie blossomed out over night. I had groomed her and weighed her just a week prior. So I put her back on the scale to double check. She had gained a whole pound in one week. There was no denying it then! She was definitely pregnant. We were shocked and a little unsure what to think, but then got very excited. She went to the vet and got a check up and X-rays. The vet could only see two pups and asked that I bring her back in two weeks. Two weeks later, the X-ray showed four puppies.

On March 12, 2021, Frenchie went into active labor. She was laying around all day acting like she was ready to whelp, so we expected it at any moment. The first puppy was born and before we even has the cord tied off, she pushed out puppy number two. She waited about 15-20 minutes and along came the third puppy that looks just like her. She rested and let the babies nurse for almost an hour before the last sweet baby arrived. Frenchie did awesome. She’s a fabulous mom!  We docked tails and removed dew claws when they were 5 days old.

UPDATE:
All puppies have homes and can go home starting May 7, 2021. We have a vet appointment late morning on the 7th to get the health certificates for each puppy and the thumbs up that they are healthy according to the veterinarian and can go home. They turn 8 weeks that day.

Puppies are eating hard food now. I have compiled a list of some basic items for you all to have upon puppies arrival in her new home. This is completely up to everyone how they want to raise their schnoodle girl so these are just ideas and things they are used to here.

Puppy supply list:
Collar or harness, leash, food and water dish, puppy food, small training treats, bed, crate, playpen, toys, piddle pads if using.

Set  a vet appointment for continuing puppy shots. They received their first worming and booster shot on Tuesday, April 27. Our vet recommends they receive their next shot mid-May.

Find a groomer but don’t schedule first appointment until puppy shots are completed (16 weeks normally)

Meet Our Bunny Bumpkins Team

Hi! I'm the heart behind every bunny you see on this website. I fell in love with these fluffy babies and had to have them. I socialize them and spend time with them every chance I get. Occasionally I feed and clean but I'm usually caught slacking on that part of the job and excelling at snuggling them 100% of the time.

aHnika - Chief Bunny SNUGgler

I am the chief groomer, cleaner and feeder. I TRY to leave the snuggling to the kids although these sweet fur balls have become a quick obsession of mine. I find myself giving bunny kisses often. I take the blame for the excessive number of bunnies we own lol.

mom –Chief groomer

I'm the errand boy. Anything they need, I go get it. I pick up about 600 lbs of feed and a couple bales of hay every two weeks!  I'm also caught trying to train the baby bunnies to come to me right out of the nest box as soon as their eyes open (every litter). I can't resist these cute little bunnies.

dad – errand boy

I am the brains behind the genetics and planned litters. I take most of the pictures and videos and handle all the finances of the biz. My kids are infatuated with every single bunny and enjoy getting to hold the bunnies when allowed. Sometimes they even get to help water the bunnies.

'Rabbits have a subtle repertoire of body language to communicate so they don't draw attention to themselves. They use these signals to bond with their hutch mates, and the humans in their lives to say 'I love you'.
